Pakistanis are celebrating their Independence day today, on 14 of August and Indians will be celebrating their Independence day tomorrow, on 15 of August.
It is no surprise that even after 70 years there is still bad blood between the two countries and are even known as arch rivals; Kashmir issue is one of their biggest differences. And so the peace efforts that are made by people of either country are greatly appreciated and recognized.
Recently, ‘Voice of Ram’, a humanitarian Facebook page just released a video featuring the Pakistani National Anthem and the Indian National Anthem sung by singers from both countries and this mash up of both the anthems is going viral.
The video begins with the words, “When we open our borders to art, peace comes along.” And it closes with the words, “Let’s stand together for peace”.
Filmmaker and activist Ram Subramanian, who heads Voice of Ram, told Indian site Catch News that he made the videos “because a lot of people are afraid to speak about peace, and it’s an illogical fear”.
